This is my 2010 high school All-America football team, selected for CBS College Sports. Of the 26 players, 15 have made college commitments.
The Player of the Year will be running back Savon Huggins of Jersey City, N.J., or 6-6, 240-pound defensive end Jadeveon Clowney of Rock Hill, N.C. My choice as the nation's No. 1 player in the preseason, fullback/linebacker James Wilder of Tampa, Fla., was slowed by injuries throughout the season but still played well enough to earn a spot on the elite team. He is committed to Florida State.
The quarterbacks are Auburn-bound Kiehl Frazier of Springdale, Ark., and Florida-bound Jeff Driskel of Oviedo, Fla.
The running backs are Huggins, Texas-bound Malcolm Brown of Cibolo, Texas, and Nebraska-bound Aaron Green of San Antonio, Texas. Huggins had had a sensational senior year and leaped ahead of Brown, Green and LSU-bound Kenny Hilliard of Patterson, La., as the premier ball-carrier in the country.
The wide receivers are LSU-bound Jarvis Landry of Lutcher, La., and George Farmer of Gardena, Calif.
The tight end is Jay Rome of Valdosta, Ga.
Heading a supremely talented crop of offensive linemen are Cyrus Kouandjio of Hyattsville, Md., LSU-bound La'El Collins of Baton Rouge, La., South Carolina-bound Brandon Shell of Goose Creek, S.C., Arkansas-bound Brey Cook of Springdale, Ark., and Texas-bound Christian Westerman of Chandler, Ariz. All ranked among the top 29 players in the nation with Kouandjio, Collins and Shell in the top seven.
Clowney and Ray Drew of Thomasville, Ga., are the defensive ends.
Tim Jernigan of Lake City, Fla., and LSU-bound Anthony Johnson of New Orleans, La., are the defensive tackles.
The outside linebackers are Wilder, Stephone Anthony of Wadesboro, N.C., and Tony Steward of St. Augustine, Fla.
The inside linebackers are Michigan State-bound Lawrence Thomas of Detroit, Mich., and Curtis Grant of Richmond, Va.
The safeties are Florida State-bound Karlos Williams of Davenport, Fla., and Alabama-bound Hasean Clinton-Dix of Orlando, Fla.
Alabama-bound Jabrill Washington of Jackson, Tenn., and Doran Grant of Akron, Ohio are the cornerbacks.
The sleeper of the year? Guy Billups, a 6-1, 180-pund quarterback from Oxford, Miss., who passed for 2,800 yards this season. He completed 70 percent of his passes. In his last three games, he completed 44 of 51 passes for 700 yards and 11 touchdowns. But he has no scholarship offers, not even any interest from his hometown university, Ole Miss. He reminds me of Drew Brees, who also had no offers coming out of high school.
The national prep school player of the year is Cody Keith, a quarterback from Connecticut who has committed to East Carolina. In one game this season, he passed for 700 yards and nine touchdowns.
